Women's History Month events honor heroines changing history

March events featuring food, fun and reflection honor valiant women bridging the gap

UC campuses highlight women who have broken boundaries throughout history and those bridging the gap even now with engaging events open to everyone throughout March.

Experience two exhibits honoring women from the early 20th-century currently on display through the end of the semester in UC's Walter C. Langsam Library. The "Votes for Women" and the "Women of the Movement" exhibits highlight women who broke the barriers of race and gender and include UC's own Marian Spencer, a champion for civil rights both locally and nationally.

The National Women's History Month theme for 2020, "Valiant Women of the Vote," honors the brave women who fought to win suffrage rights for women, and for the women who continue to fight for the voting rights of others.

All are welcome. Enjoy celebrations honoring UC female student veterans, guest speakers and more, open to the general public and all members of the campus community.

UC Libraries will profile African American female leaders who have fought for civil rights. The exhibit will span many years of history including Sojourner Truth, former slave and abolitionist; Diane Nash, a key player in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and UC and Cincinnati's Marian Spencer, a champion for civil rights both locally and nationally. 

For more information, contact Melissa Norris or UC Libraries website.

Votes for Women

On display throughout the spring semester, 5th floor, Walter C. Langsam Library

UC Libraries profiles the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote. The exhibit includes a timeline of the women's suffrage fight starting in 1848 when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott organized the first women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York.

Learn about milestones and setbacks along the way, including after the Civil War when the movement found itself divided over the issue of voting rights for black men, thus resulting in a split in the group fighting for women's suffrage.
